Hotel Telegraaf began it's life as a post office and telephone centre in 1878, but has since been renovated into a modern 5 star establishment. Guests at My City Hotel can enjoy a large collection of Italian art that decorates the walls as well as fresh baked breakfasts and an in-house spa, all without leaving the Old Town.
For elegant yet budget-friendly accommodation, look just outside the Old Town. For a taste of "manor elegance right in the heart of Tallinn", book a room at the Von Stackelberg Hotel, a 19th century city estate of German-Baltic Baron von Stackelberg. Each of the rooms at the modern Solo Sokos Hotel Estoria, in the city centre, are different and tell an individual story. The Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn, just across the street, is around the corner from the lively Rotermanni quarter.
Where to eat
Tallinn is compact and easy to navigate, but it still has distinct neighbourhoods, each with it's own flair and energy. In addition to old favourites, check out the city's hot new cafes and restaurants. Restaurant Korsten, Armas & Hea Toit is located in the Kultuurikatel, also known as Tallinn Creative Hub, a centre for cultural events and activities situated in a retired power plant. A visit to Restaurant Fabrik, with a cosy Nordic interior and menu, or to Apelsini Raudtee, a converted former railway building, will take you to the lively and down-to-earth Kalamaja district. After a stroll in the snow covered gardens of Kadriorg park and palace, sit down for a meal at Restaurant Mon Repos, housed in a villa.
